Selwa Sweidan has left the building

Selwa Sweidan has left the building

"Born in Malta. Played in the goat field across the street and hung out with my little sister and the rabbits. Moved to suburb of NY at 5. Returned to Malta at 10. Moved back to the US for college at age 17 (location: Northampton, MA)." Selwa Sweidan is Fabrica's international woman of mysery. And she's leaving tomorrow.


What did you do before coming to Fabrica?
I was living in Parma, eating amazing ham ... and before that living in Tokyo eating lots of 'unagi donburi' (eel + rice) and ... so moving to Treviso was not a huge change.. though the accent is really different in Parma... I never knew there was a 'french' sounding italian accent until I went to Parma! (it's the r sound)..

What's the plan now?
Going back to Tokyo.. ! .. Visitors welcome! (after a few months to settle in of course)!

Your most priceless accomplishment from the experience here?
Definitely workshops and collaborations.. all due to the lovely Fabricanti here... A big thanks to Miss Koby for all our wonderful work together. Sam Baron for his support. Andy Cameron for giving me time ... and Renzo for signing all those papers!

Your favorite part about living in Treviso?
Living in a city with water..and all the little bubbling brooks, streams and/or rivers.. is quite lovely! Plus there are some wonderful 'Osterias' for good 'apertivo'! (Tip: check out the one next to the big Benetton store in Piazza Signori.. it's down the small alley.)

Your least favorite part about living in Treviso?
Winter! It gets dark way too early, it's less appealing to bike to Fabrica in the cold and... a huge stock of movies is definitely necessary.

Any last words for the Fabricanti?
Thanks Fabricanti!!!!!

Farewell Sweet Selwa.

Good luck selwa on your new journey and thank you for taking me to that secret wonderful osteria behind p. signori where we stuffed our faces with cheese and prosecco :)

Ci sentiamo presto a Tokyo.

You'll do fantastic and keep me posted on the jewellery progress!

big hugs and kisses and a cackle or two,
